Part of the Contributions To Phenomenology book series (CTPH, volume 98)

Abstract

The inadequacy of ambiguous theories of interpretation left the door open for arbitrary interpretations of a text. During the Reformation, hermeneutics became a vital topic for theology. Varying and conflicting interpretations of Scripture were offered by Protestants and Catholics, leading to attempts to provide an account of the principles behind interpretation. In this chapter, Shpet traces these attempts through Flacius and in the Renaissance.
